“Chicken. Get the chicken.”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

I recently tried to find the best friend chicken west of the four-hundred-and-five in West LA. With no Roscoe's to easily scoop up the win, I tried just about everyplace I could find. The Misfit (where I happily now pay the light bill), took the honors (and still holds them).

Solid drinks. Good crowd. Great place.

Cons: can be packed, which means there can be a wait. Can be loud when packed. Seriously, big deal though.

Pros: Fried Chicken. Reasonable whiskey selection. Good drinks in general. Great vibe. And the dates. Get the dates.

“Sunday Brunch with the Dogs”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

What a pleasant surprise. Fascinating fresh menu with local and organic choices. They are dog friendly and the service rates an 11!
We had cocktails, Ahi Burger, fries and the Prime Rib Dip Nik Niks (sliders). Everything was so good, we are going back tomorrow to try brunch again with an egg and vegetarian dish!

“Great cocktails & American Bar Food”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

This is a local go-to for me that provides a lively scene and good food. The salads are great, but the lobster sliders and the mound of shoestring fries are a perennial favorite.

“Amazing tasting food”
Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

One of the busiest places on a Tuesday night in the centre of SM. Got a cosy seat and after a bit of a wait, ordered cocktails - quality, strong enough and good flavours.

Had the tuna sashimi as a starter, which was ample to share and tasty. Then the lobster & steak nik naks - my word...sooo good, amazing. Also shared burger, which was very good too. Quantities were fine, we probably were ok without the burger, but we managed it too.

It was a little noisy, loud LA writer with her followers taking notes, but that's part of the scene! We could hear each other speak.

Only slightly negative comment: on being presented with the bill, the last round of drinks had been missed off. Being good citizens (or fools, depending upon your morale viewpoint), we pointed this out. There was not one iota of appreciation from the waitress or anyone at all.

Would definitely go back again, but perhaps not check the bill so closely!
